Pioneer 90.1 features “Backstory with the American History Guys”
New on Pioneer 90.1 Weekends: BackStory is a public radio program bringing historical perspective to the events happening around us today. Every Saturday at noon, U.S. historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh tear a topic from the headlines and plumb its historical depths. Over the course of the hour, they are joined by fellow historians, people in the news, and callers interested in exploring the roots of what’s going on today.
Together, they drill down to colonial times and earlier, revealing the connections (and disconnections) between past and present. With its passionate, intelligent, and irreverent approach, BackStory is fun and essential weekend listening.
